We love the game and of course love the Cricketers but you may have not known about the father-Son Cricketers who have been shaping the history of this high pulsed game. For all the cricket lovers, this one is just for you!
1.Peter and Shaun Pollock
Country – South Africa
Family– Peter Pollock is the brother of the Legend Graeme and his son, Shaun has been one of the most successful bowlers in the cricket history. Highest run getter at 3781 runs and a successful bowling stint at 421 wickets make him an example for the game!
2. Geoff, Shaun and Mitchell Marsh
Country – Australia
Family – The right hand opener from Australia, Geoff Marsh played a total of 50 tests and is credited with Australia’s 1987 World Cup Win. The son, Shaun Marsh is a left-hand batsman who debuted against Sri Lanka in 2011. And then the youngest all rounder sibling joined in 2014. That is Cricket in the blood!
3. Nawab Patuadi Sr and MAK Pataudi

5. Hanif Mohammad & Shoaib Mohammad

Family – Talk about the longest Test Innings in the history of sports and this is a name you would say! 970 minutes of a elongated run on the ground, makes him almost a superhuman. His son has not been that talented but still remembered for some matches that he played with excellence.
6. Chris Broad & Stuart Broad
